Americans throw away over 65 million styrofoam products every day. Styrofoam is difficult to recycle and contains toxic materials.
Creating a visualization of how much styrofoam your cafeteria throws away will pressure the school to use a greener alternative.
Ask students, instead of throwing out their styrofoam plate, to write their name on it. Then display the plates to encourage your school to switch to recyclable paper plates.
